I've been an avid fan of Amel's music since the Groove Theory days and have bought any CD/track she's participated in(Sweetback, Soulive, Stanley Clark, Mondo Grosso,etc.)because I'll always be safe knowing that any song by her is A quality. Sony should be ashamed of themselves for not giving her the necessary promotion for her album. That's showbiz for you...they're only about the $$, quantity over quality, you know? I agree, she is underrated.
Anyhow, looking forward to talkin w/ all of yall.
P.S. Did you know that there is a Yahoo Group about Amel Larrieux? In case you didn't, here's the URL.
